The news comes after the squad evaluation conducted by current manager Sami Hyypia who believes Bruno, Calderon and Ankergen can add to his the squad depth.

33-year old midfielder Bruno originally joined on a free transfer from Valencia and has made 64 appearances in three seasons at the club.

34-year old goalkeeper Casper Ankergen joined the club in 2010 and went on to make 75 appearances before his release and re-signing.

Inigo Calderon has been with Brighton since 2010 and the 34-year old recently became the club’s longest-serving player.

Brighton manager Hyypia told the press, “Casper, Bruno and Inigo have been important members of the squad in recent years, and I am pleased they have agreed terms with club for another year.

“They’re experienced heads with a lot of games between them, they know the Championship well and they give us continuity within the squad.

“I had a limited knowledge of all three, but Nathan Jones has given me some sound input on the entire squad – including the three of them.

“Having had a chance to review a number of DVDs from last season, I can see their qualities and I am sure they’ll continue to be key for us in the season ahead.”
